MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso will be a little lighter in the pocketbook, after a big hit he put on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco last Thursday night.
While Alonso did not get tossed from the game after what defensive coordinator Matt Burke referred to as a “bang-bang” play, he was fined $9,115 by the league, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.READ MORE: Fort Lauderdale Police Investigating School Threats
